Redistricting has hit Concord hard. They were just fine with the average kid was from a middle to upper middle family, but now with a average mix of the local population added in, they just can't compete. Now they seem burdened, slow, and tired. It's the same teachers and the same programs, but it isn't at all like it was when we sent our son to 1st grade. If this had not been his last year, we would have tried to move him elsewhere. I honestly don't know how the other local schools compare, but I would think twice now before sending my children to Concord. They simply did not absorb the redistricting successfully.

All three of my children have been pupils at this school, one is now in high school in honors programs and one in middle school eligible to do his psats this year, their elementary schooling was of a very high standard setting them up for a successful middle and high school education. My youngest is presently in 5th grade and have a child with ADHD can be trying , her teachers have worked closely with us monitoring her progress and whether her medication is helping or hindering her progress. They have a very proactive approach to problems such as bullying with zero tolerance and considering problems we had at a prior elementary school I am very satisfied. They encourage extra-curricula activities such as " kids on key", running club, Spanish club, The Buzzword- school newspaper, written by 5th graders and 4th graders. They reward the kids for good character traits and behavior and attendance. Going to miss this school when my youngest moves to middle school thie end of this year.

My whole family loved this school! The teachers were excellent and very caring. The principal was a great leader who greeted the children daily and knew each child by name. It is and IB school that teaches wonderful values about education, learning, and citizenship. And they have a wonderful gifted and talented program. Parents are very involved. We were very sad to move away. No school since has compared to Concord.

This school was once a great school. It is old now and lacks the leadership it once had. Look towards the newer schools: Midway and an even newer one to open in a year or two in North Anderson!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
